Journalist, film producer, and media consultant, mixing it up for TV, online, newspapers and magazines. I cover travel & tourism, lifestyle, and design. Mainly. This is the HQ for previous work, and an introduction to current projects. I work all over the world and live on a farm in Cadiz which I write about at www.somewheresville.org.
Hyena Men (commissioned by five in 2009) was inspired a series of photographs by Pieter Hugo, “The Hyena and Other Men’.
“This film captures the weird beauty and savagery, music, voices and the spectacle of a bizarre ‘travelling circus’ that bewitches audiences. It shows the quieter lives of hyenas, men and baboons as they traipse the dusty roads from town to town.
Hugo: “Response around the world to these photographs has been a mix of repulsion, fascination, curiosity and wonder. Instead of criticizing the hyena men, perhaps we could ask why these performers need to catch wild animals to make a living. Or why they are economically marginalised. Or why Nigeria, the world’s sixth largest exporter of oil, is in such a state of disarray.”
